Over the weekend the Bombers 10 yr old Blue Team headed to Diamond Nation in Flemington, NJ where they went 2-1. In the three games the team posted up 39 hits and 20 walks to boost the team batting average to .370 and the team On Base Percentage to .460.

The final of game one was the Jersey State Bombers 10 and the North Jersey Expos 4. Ryan Graham pitched a gem while throwing the entire six inning game. The second game was an unlike-Bombers performance where they fell to the Young Guns 11-5. Walks and errors haunted the Bombers for part of this game allowing many un-earned runs.

In Game three the Bombers took on Gallagher Select. This game was neck and neck until the 5th inning. The score was 2-1 with Gallagher in the lead going in to the fifth until the Bombers batted in the bottom of the inning scoring 7 runs making the score 8-2. Somehow the final was 8-7 with the Bombers taking the W. Nate Liedtka pitched outstanding through five innings keeping the opponent to only 2 runs scored. In the last inning there were some errors mixed in with a couple hits to help give the Gallagher Select one more last minute run but the Bombers held on to give them their only loss of the tournament. The Gallagher Select went on to win the tournament beating Medford in the finals.

Cooper Quigley, Matt Christopher, EJ Mangione and Sean Dugan put up 5 hits a piece in the tournament. Jake Bianco and Blake Olsen both finished 4 for 8 on the weekend. Olsen also had 4 rbi’s. Garrett Carella was 3 for 8 and Ryan Graham was 3 for 6.
